Favourite mountain images of 2015

DSC_9553copyInside the Feith Buidhe snow-field in the Cairngorms in October. A remarkable network of tunnels and caverns, this was an ideal location for shooting with an 11-16mm ‘super-wide’.

Sail Mhor and LiathachWinter’s arrival in Torridon.

An TeallachAn Teallach from Glas Thol, one of my favourite places for winter climbing. The routes on Glas Thol top-out to this view – easily one of the most impressive in the UK.

First light catching the Aonach Eagach, Glencoe.

Bidean nam Bian's North ridgeThe North-East Ridge of Bidean nam Bian, Glencoe. This is a location I have photographed dozens of times but the human element in this particular image makes it stand out for me.

The Grey OneLoch Clair and Liathach, Torridon. An over-photographed location but in such perfectly calm conditions I could not resist.

The CrocA climber on ‘The Croc’, Beinn Udlaidh. Seconds later she took a 30ft fall.

Hell's LumHell’s Lum in the Cairngorms.

SliochLooking past Slioch’s Atlantic Buttress into Fisherfield. 

Ben Cruachan from Beinn Udlaidh. Despite increasingly using my 11-16mm lens in the mountains, my preference is still to use a telephoto lens for mountain landscapes.
